Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya
by Anton Chekhov
Based on the translation by Marian Fell
Uncle Abram - A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya is an American retelling of the Russian classic set in the Reconstruction South. Placed in a former plantation in south-central Missouri, this adaptation combines Native American and African American influences that both heighten and intensify the original Chekhovian text.
The backdrop being one of the most progressive periods in American history instills a hope of what is possible, along with the awareness of the delicacy of social progress.
Uncle Abram - A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya awakens our spirit for a better tomorrow, and tests our fortitude by begging the question, "What are you willing to sacrifice to change the world?"
